SLEEP DEPRIVATION EFFECTS ON ACCURACY AND SPEED OF RESPONSE SELECTION AND EXECUTION
Several subjects performed a subject-paced step-tracking task after zero, one and two nights without sleep. Their performance compared to performance when following a similar regime with normal sleep showed no change in accuracy but a progressive reduction in speed. Movement times increased with sleep loss and reaction times increased to an amount dependent on signal probability.
